The Los Angeles Times has named Sean Gallagher to run its online newsroom operations and oversee the Los Angeles Times Media Group's growing portfolio of digital properties.
Gallagher will assume the title of managing editor, online, Times Editor Russ Stanton said in a statement. Gallagher had been serving as managing editor of the newspaper's website, latimes.com.
"Sean's talent, integrity and command of virtually every facet of online publishing have been crucial to latimes.com's success," Stanton said. "He will provide valuable leadership as we continue to evolve and has already played a key role in helping shape our round-the-clock, fully integrated newsroom."
Gallagher succeeds Meredith Artley, who oversaw a recent redesign of latimes.com. Artley left this month to take a job at CNN.com.
